Now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd's After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the Internet's most talked-about book for yourself!

There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there's everything AFTER... Life will never be the same. #Hessa

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She's got direction, ambition, and a mother who's intent on keeping her that way.

But she's barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she's used to.

But he's also rude-to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does-until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she's never known before.

He'll call her beautiful, then insist he isn't the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin's prejudice about nice girls like her?

Unless...could this be love ?

The whole series is amazing and so thrilling and frustrating. A book that I’d gladly read over and over again

The whole series is disgusting. It jsut revolves around sex- and they aren't even married. :(

A friend recommended this book to me; when I first heard that it was a form of fan fiction for One Direction (Harry Styles), I was not interested. But I gave it a shot, and I am VERY impressed with this book!! Don't be fooled, it has nothing to do with One Direction, and it is such a realistic romance novel! I admit that I could not put the book down- I ordered the rest of the series before I even finished this book.

great book this book helped me become a reader

This book was good but not as good as i thought it would be. The one thing that annoyed me as a reader was how Tessa and “Hardin”(was that the only name you could find) kept going on and off. Anna created a plot that was catching at points of time but became annoying after they repeatedly occur again and again.
